Use the TFL journey planner on their website (www.tfl.gov.uk) and see how you can get home by bus and tube, if your service is severely delayed or cancelled.

Hope this helps.

Can't believe they get away with this time after time and still can increase fares. Diabolical. Especially after being stuck on a train standstill for well over an hour this morning.

There is no tube anywhere near Bromley, & Orpington. The so called "North Greenwich" station is more difficult to get to than is London Bridge & it's a bluddy long walk from London Bridge.

You're right unfortunately. Off the top of my head for Orpington you'd have to get the DLR to Woolwich (or bus from North Greenwich to Woolwich) then the 51 bus to Orpington.

For Bromley you'd have to get the DLR to Lewisham then the 208.

That is fine if you are in London or the suburbs. If you are trying to travel into London after work that is another matter. You don't have to go very far out to find that you have rural transport which is infrequent and finishes early. It is the stations in the more rural areas which are frequently unmanned, and the information board is telling you your train is one minute away. it transpires that it is half an hour away, and suddenly it isn't going to stop at intermediate stations. The option is not a bus or tube. It is £50 for a taxi to get home. After a considerable wait because everyone else wants a taxi too.

It got better for a while when Southeastern thought they might lose their franchise. When they were awarded it again, the service became worse than ever.

The irony is that twenty years ago there were several green, and yellow coloured buses running through Orpington, Sidcup, Bexley, & Bromley, which travelled outside of the Greater London region. Then Ken "Larndarn" Livingstone stuck his oar in. Today we are left with our old friends the 402, & the 477, & thats pretty much it.

I've started using the claim form for every time they delay me. Hit them in the pocket, it's the only language they understand
